And a gloomy mental winter
Soon would reign if he were gone.

::_Whatevor may be your choice of fu
ture occupation—whatever calling or
profession you may select—thereis cer
tainly none more honorable than that
of a farmer. The patriarch of the
field, as ho sits beside his cottage door
whoa the toils of the day are over, feels
an inward calm never known in the
halls of pride. His labor yields him
unpurchasablo health and repose. I
have observed, with more grief and
pain than I can express, the visible to
kens which appear in all directions, of
a growing disposition to avoid agricul
tural pursuits and to rush into some of
the crowded professions, because a cor
rupt and debased fitshion has thrown
-around them the tinsel of imaginary
respectability. Hence the farmer in
stead of preparing his child to follow in
the path of usefulness ho himself has
trod, educates him for a sloth : labor is
considered vulgar,to work is ungenteel,
the jack-plane is less respectable than
the lawyer's green bag, the handles of
the plow less dignified than the yard
stick. Unfortunate infatuation I How
melancholy is this delusion, which, un
less it be checked by a wholesome re
form in public opinion, will cover our
country with wreck and ruin This
state of things is striking at the very
foundation of our national greatness.
It is upon agriculture that we mainly
depend for our continued prosperity,
and dark and evil will be the day when
it falls into disrepute. What other
pursuit offers so sure a guarantee °fan
honest, independent family? Where
else can we look but to the productions
of the soil for safety of investment and
for ample 'return? In commercial spec
ulations all is chance and uncertainty,
change and fluctuation, rise and fall.—

in ten makes enough to meet his inci

account for this fatal misdirection of
public opinion 7 The cultivators of

to its liberty and interests by the most

than a humble echo, that repeats and
assents to whatever one suggests or
asserts. It is a nuisance always to be

to argue his points and provo his posi
The whetstone of opposition sharpens
his wit; but, met with a continual af
firmative iteration of his own words,
his game is blocked, and 'he is, so to
speak, dumbfounded. On the contrary,
a sententious "No; I don't think so,"
puts a man on his metal. If wrong, he
has a obance to be set right, or of en!

company with one who has no opinion
but your opinion, is as bad as being
caged with a macaw. If you ask an
individual'in the habit of agreeing with
everybody, the reason of his complai-

FEBRUARY 26. 1868.
Lessons from an Old Merohant.
That veteran and honorable mer
chant, Jonathan Sturges of New York,
at the dinnergiven in his honor on the
occasion of his retirement from active
business, gave the following gOlden
counsel to young mon :
NOW, gentlemen, since there is noth
ing that I oan talk about that you'do
not understand a gi•ciat deal better than
I do, propose to say a few words for
the benefit of the young men outside,
and if you approve of what is said, let
it be considered as said by this Grand
Jury of Merchants now assembled.
One of the first lesson's I received
was in 1818, when I was eleven years
of age. My grandfather had collected
a fine flock of merino sheep, which
wore carefully cherished during the
war of 1812-15. I was a shepherd
boy, and my business was to watch the
sheep in the fields. A boy, who was
more fond of his books than of sheep,
was sent with me, but left the work to
me, while he lay in the shade and road
his books. I finally complained of this
to the old gentleman. I shall never
forgot his benignant smile as he rdplied:
"Never you mind; if you watch the
sheep, -you will have the sheep." I
thought to myself : what does the old
gentleman mean? I don't expect to
have any sheep. My aspirations were
quite moderate in those days, and a
first rate merino buck was worth one
thousand dollars. I could not make
out exactly what he meant, but I had
great confidence in him, as he was a
Judge, and had been to Congress in
Washington's time, so I concluded that
it was all right, whatever;he meant,
and went- out contentedly_ with the
sheep. After I got to the field I could
not got that idea out of my head.. Fi
nally I thought of my Sunday lesson ;
"Thou host been faithful over a. few
things, I will make you ruler over
many things." Then I understood it:
Never you mind who else neglects his
duty; be you faithful, and you will
have your, reward; I do not think it
will take many lads as long as it did
me to understand thin proverb.
I received my second lesson soon af
ter I came to this city, as a clerk to
the late Lyman "Aced. 4 merchant
fiom Ohio, who knew me, came to pur
chase goods of Mr. Reed. Ho express
ed his gratification at finding mo there,
and said to me: "You have got a good
place. Make yourself so useful that
choy cannot do without you." *I took
his meaning quicker than I, did the
proverb about the sheep. Well, I Work
ed upon these two ideas until Mr. Reed
offered mean interest in his business.
The first morning after the copart,
norship was announced, Mr. Jas. Geery,
the old tea merchant, called to see me,
and said to me ; "You are all right
now; I have one word of advice to give
you: be careful who you walk the
streets with." That was lesson num
In this connection I must repeat an
anecdote told of the late Robert Len
nox, A country merchant came into
the store of Mr. Morton, a highly re
spectable Scotch merchant, to purchase
goods. He spoke about credit, refer
ences, kc, Mr. Morton said : "I will
give you what credit you wish.' But,'
said the merchant, I am an entire
stranger to you.' Mr. Morton replied i
'Yes, I was at church with him,' 'Well,
I will trust any man whom Robert
Lennox will take to church with him."
I hope these three lessons of watch
fulness over the interests of their ein
ployers, watchfulness over their part
ners' interests and their own, after
they are joined, followed by intense
watchfulness that no black sheep creep
into their folds, may he impressed by
these anecdotes upon the minds of
those for whom they aro intended.'
Ono other lesson I feel it very nec
essary to inculcate—that of patience.
With a little patience most yoking
men will find a position as high as they
have fitted themselves to fill.
In all the changes which have taken
place in my firm since 1822, no part
ner has been brought' in who has not
served as a clerk in the establishment.
And I now have my house well organ-
ized, prosperous and free from compli
cations, still in the hands of those who
have served in it as clerks for a longer
or shorter period. I mention this as
an encouragement to young men to
persevere in the faithful perfOrmauce
of their duties.
HOME AFTER BIiZINESS liouns.—The
road along which the man of business
travels in the pursuit of competence or
wealth is not a Macadamized one, nor
does it ordinarily lead through pleas
ant scones and by well-springs of de
light. On the contrary,it isarough and
rugged path, beset with "wait-a , bit"
thorns, and full of pitlalle,.which can
only be avoided by the care of
circumspection. After ev*y day'p
journey over. this worse than rough
turnpike road,tho wayfarer needs some
thing mere than rest; ho requires sol
ace and 14e deserves it. Re is weary
of the dull prose of life, and athirst for
the poetry. Nappy is the business
man who can find th# solace and that
poetry at, home. Warm greetings from
loving hearts, fond glances from bright
eyes, and welcome shouts of children,
the many- thousand little arrangements
for comfort and enjoyment that silent
ly tell of thoughtful and ezpectant
love, the gentle ministrations that die
vmumber us into an old and easy seat
before we are aware of it; these and
like tokens of affection and sympathy
constitute the poetry which reconciles
ns to the prose of life. Think of this,
ye wives and daughters of business
men Think of the toils, the anxieties,
the mortification and wear that fathers
undergo to secure for you comfortable
homes and compensate them for their
trials by making them happy by their

very far from completion, although,
they expect it will be finished in Bor
10 years. Its , dimensions are as, fol
lows :-523 feet long, . 523 wide, and
523 feet high, or rather these are the
dimensions when completed. The two
towers in front are at present but lit
tle higher than the roof; which is 280
feet. The interior is strictly grand,
with its tall clustered columns running
up to that wonderful height, the, nary. :
ed and fretted ceiling, the great win
dow of stained glass in the end, the
statues and other decorations, and the
five glorious windows of stained glass
presented by the ding of Bavaria.—
These latter are windows of rare beau
ty, executed in Munich within the last
few years. A very neat spire rises
from the centre of the Cathedral, and
the Gothic ornaments on the roof, with
the elaborate carvings over the entran
ces give the building a very rich and,
elegant appearance. When completed,
according to the original design, it will
no doubt be the grandest Cothedral, in
the world, excepting, perhaps, the
Dnomo, at Milan, whose myriad sta
tues, marble material, and incompara
ble interior, give it the preeminence.
As every Cathedral must have some
relics, this claims to have the bones of
the three wise.men who came from the
Fast to worship the new-born Saviour
at Bethlehem. This is about as pre:
posterous a claim as the houses of Dives
and Lazarus, which are pointed out in
Jerusalem. But they have these bones
set in jewels, but not only so, but throe
sculls have the nrgnps of ; the Magii,
written on them in rubies. The, pre
cious stones and gold about them are
said to be worth six million dollors.
